You can file a claim against your employer for any injurious event that occurred on the job due to unsafe or hazardous working conditions. The event must cause illness, injury, impairment, disability, or death to an employee. Employers are obligated by law to provide a safe working environment free of hazards. If accident, disease, injury, or death resulted from dangerous working conditions, you are probably entitled to substantial compensation.
You have three years to file a claim, but the sooner you act on your own behalf, the more powerful your case will be. So contact Applybys Solicitors immediately about your case.
To get in touch, use the form on this page, e-mail us at email@example.com, or call us at 0800 169 1325. We can quickly assess whether you have a legitimate claim, the amount of compensation possible, and what you'll need to do next.
If you've suffered a work-related injury please do the following to help your claim:
(1) Report the injury to your employer in writing
(2) Make sure the incident is recorded in the employer's Accident Book
(3) Record the witnesses and details of the event in writing
(4) Photograph the machinery, conditions, and location of the accident, if possible
(5) See a physician promptly for treatment, and obtain a written and detailed assessment about your injuries
Employers are legally required to report to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) all accidents, injuries, diseases, and deaths sustained on the job. Make sure that your incident was promptly and properly reported to the HSE.
